The Child Spirit is a game I created for the Ludum Dare. You play a fox gathering forest animals to make the Great Spirit come back. The contest theme was "Growing, two buttons control". I made everything from scratch (except the ambience nature sounds) in more or less 25h.

The game is made with Unity in C# and I wanted to work mainly on the atmosphere, despite the very short time available.


The “Child Spirit” is a simple non linear runner game where you play a fox. You must find animals and get back the Forest Spirit who is leaving. The goal is more or less in line with the “growing” theme, as you’re supposed to grow a herd of the forest animals.

I really enjoy this game, but there's a glitch that makes you fall through the ground. Other than that, amazing game!

Wow! Somebody played my game! Amazing! Thank a lot for the feedback! And sorry for the glitch :S
